Seismic societal shifts exacerbated by a global pandemic have drawn into question many values, structures, and public policies in Canada, including those guiding heritage conservation. As the urgency increases to advance decolonization and anti-racism, take bold climate action, and redress economic and social inequity, are heritage principles and heritage places in step, or stuck in the past? Now is the time for realignment and concerted action. How can we accelerate the heritage movement’s impact as a positive, essential, progressive force addressing pressing issues like climate change, racism, reconciliation, affordable housing, social justice, accessibility, economic resiliency, and more?
The National Trust in association with the Canadian Association of Heritage Professionals invites your essential participation in the transformation of the heritage sector – currently underway with the pan-Canadian Heritage Reset initiative and culminating at this conference in Fall 2022.
